Grease hub question

Is there a specific grease used for the dexter axels on Whitehawk trailers with the ez-lube hubs?

Dexter says " proper lubrication is essential to the current function and reliability of your trailer axle"


Any quality grease will do.


EZ-Lube often.


Still, pull the axles apart, clean, repack, reassemble and adjust once-a-year or every 12,000 miles.

I don't believe there's a specific brand, just a good grease for high speed bearings , which is most automotive or marine bearing greases available at your favorite parts store.

Check out page 53 of the document that Norty references. There is a table titled, "Approved Grease Sources". Just prior to that table is another which lists the specs of the grease they would have us use.

Recommended grease is Lithium complex, NLGI No.2. Mixing grease types can cause damage due to incompatibility of the different grease formulas.

Lubrication recommendations from Dexter Axle:

Another good thing to know is the lug nut torque recommendations. Many purchase a torque wrench for this purpose. I keep mine in the trailer at all times.

That document is a source of wealth for anyone who does work or "supervises" those that work on their rig.

When I have someone working on my rig, I always ask enough questions that I already know the answer to determine to myself that they are knowledgeable about what they say or do.

Not to be a show off, but only to tune up my "BS" detector. There is a lot of that out there.

This is the correct answer as SmokerBill states (Lithium Complex). Jack the TT up and spin the wheel as your pumping the grease in slowly.

Yep. And never when the hubs are cold. It's best if done on a hot day, or after some towing on the road. Pumping grease into cold hubs creates more potential for blowing the lube out the rear seal and contaminating the brakes.

X2 all the way! My bearings are going on year 6 and they look and feel just like new.
